“U got us all mistaken! And we ain’t going for it! Straight up! ” James wrote in his caption for the purposes of an revised explanation of the H& M ad made by master Chris Classic, who had superimposed crowns on the boy’s intelligence and sweatshirt, and contributed the label: “KING OF THE WORLD.”

“We as African Americans will always have to break barricades, prove people bad and run even harder to prove we belong but guess what, that’s what we enjoy because the benefits at the end of the road are so beautiful !! ” he added.
